Denzel Mims is one of the most intriguing wideouts from the 2020 NFL Draft class. With a 6-foot-3 frame and a 4.38 time in the 40-yard dash, Mims has that size-speed combo that both fans and scouts love.

He's already began building a rapport with New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, and these comments from his former head coach Matt Rhule should get Jets fans even more hyped about his future with the team.

Speaking on "The Last Stand Podcast" former Baylor Bears head coach Matt Rhule gave a pretty strong endorsement of Mims:

I grew up in that area and I know one thing about Jets’ fans: They want toughness... They want someone who’s going to compete. They want grinders and workers, and that’s what Denzel is… He’s not going to be some guy who’s all about the headlines. He’s a worker.

That's exactly what Jets fans want to hear. New York fans have to love seeing all these positive reports about their prized rookie wideout, especially since training camp hasn't even begun.
